Queenslanders have shown their support for a government that has created jobs, restored frontline services and retained public assets over an unstable and chaotic LNP/One Nation Coalition government with a cut, sack and sell agenda.
The QCU’s Stand for Queensland campaign had successful outcomes in nine targeted seats: Cairns, Cook, Gaven, Mundingburra, Keppel, Maryborough, Mansfield, Mount Ommaney and Springwood, and had come close in several other electorates.
“These results so far show that our campaign made a big difference in these critical electorates,” Ms McLennan said.
“We had asked Queensland voters to put One Nation last, and the LNP second last,” she said.
She congratulated union members and community supporters who campaigned tirelessly over the past six months, starting with a series of union town hall meetings statewide to decide policy priorities.
“Queensland unions’ issues-based, field campaign was a modern twist on the Your Rights at Work campaign. It was nothing fancy – this campaign relied simply on talking to voters – street by street, suburb by suburb, seat by seat,” Ms McLennan said.
